How to Write a Compelling Essay About New Interior Design Trends

If you are majoring in interior design or just looking to sharpen your writing skills in the area of interior design, today’s subject is one that should be of particular interest to you. Having an eye for detail and being up on current trends is one thing, however the ability to write convincingly and persuasively about them is quite another.

Essays Vs. Blogs

It is quite safe to say that they are similar in their purpose. In both cases, there is typically a central point or theme that is presented early on, backed up with valuable information and evidence that validate the thesis, and a wrap-up of key ideas that readers should glean from reading the piece.

In academic terms, you need to pay attention to formatting and structure (both of which should be laid out in your syllabus). Blogging is a little more freestyle, but the same information can be presented in almost the same way and accomplish the task mentioned above: to inform and educate the reader about the subject. If a student can handle academic formatting with ease then they will have put in place a solid foundational knowledge necessary to become an expert blogger.

Messaging and Delivery

If you’ve been procrastinating on starting this project, it’s time to mobilize. There are a number of academic resources available online while asking yourselves “What research can I use to write a college assignment?”. An example would be EssayPro’s blog section that is filled with various academic guides and How To’s. Nonetheless, it is up to the individual to take the information gathered and created a well-organized paper that is backed up by relevant research.

The goal of interior design is to create a visual interpretation of someone’s taste and make that vision into a tangible reality. The work should, therefore, be approached with that objective in mind. Give the reader the opportunity to visualize the ideas you’re presenting and see them implemented in their home, office, etc.

Start by deciding on a compelling thesis. Your thesis statement is an opinion that you are charged with proving. Let’s assume that you are writing a academic paper on a particular type of décor. Thus, it might be worth to start by showing that the style is current, gaining popularity, and is practical enough to spend the money developing.

The information should be well-researched and validated by multiple sources. Try to avoid the pitfall many writers stumble over wherein you zero in on details that match your likes and preferences. Prove the selected thesis with verifiable evidence. Don’t go off on tangents. Don’t use too many adjectives. Give the reader the opportunity to parse the information and draw his or her conclusions.

Stick To One Central Theme

We mentioned not going off on tangents. This, we know, is much easier said than done. What makes it easier is following a consistent structure when developing the content of the essay. Decide on your thesis statement, then assemble key points that relate directly to it. Don’t try to write on something as broad as “current trends.” Select a trend that can be quickly expanded upon and build your argument around it.

* Here are a few current themes you can use to begin brainstorming:
* Color Patterns in Interior Design
* Eclectic Uses of Textures and Patterns
* Trending Wallpaper Designs (Why Wallpaper Instead of Paint?)
* Outdoor Themes In Interior Design

Nonetheless, these are just general ideas. It is best to find or come up with specific focused themes allowing one to get to the point and create valid arguments justifying one’s design choices.

Sit Down And Start Writing

The best way to get past the anxiety of delivering yet another writing project is to start writing directly. The hardest thing to do often is just to start. Remember that it is always an option to go back and make edits later, but start organizing all these ideas in a basic brainstorm or even as bulletpoints.You can always reposition details or throw them out if they gravitate too far from the thesis. Just get them (virtually) on paper and deal with them with greater scrutiny in your final draft.
